The elimination of chatter is one of the major aims in machining to improve geometrical accuracy and surface finish. In this study, occurrence of chatter was investigated experimentally using a specially designed rig by examining time histories of the cutting and thrust force components. A broad experimental study was conducted using brass, cast iron and aluminium samples. It was found that by changing the horizoatal stiffness of the rig, the thrust force variations (in the vertical direction) were completely eliminated for the cast iron samples. A systematic analysis of the chip formation for the aluminium alloy is presented.
